Re: Who Else Has the Potential to Turn 'Good'?

Anyone in DB can become good-enough if they're exposed to Goku's infectious naivety for too long. Just look at Freeza, he went from a total psychopath that randomly kills his minions whenever he feels like it to tolerating a minor degree of disrespect from others. The old Freeza never would've allo...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

I'm sure it's been answered somewhere but I'll ask again. Are they doing a retcon so that Goku and Vegeta are now the same age? "Three saiyans born at around the same time" does not necessarily mean that they are "the same age". It could mean that they were born in the same generation (10 year gap,...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Nah Broly and vegeta are too busy trying to kill each other. To be honest, I think the main reason why Freeza was brought back for the ToP was just to be used and killed in this movie. Either Broly or Vegeta doing it would satisfying. One thing that would be even better is Broly or Vegeta killing B...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Even though I've been a Dragon Ball fan for around 20 years (and I'm 25 years old), constantly still following Dragon Ball and it being my favorite manga/anime of all time, this whole Bardock retcon and Minus doesn't bother me at all. I'm still going to enjoy this movie. The changes won't determine...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Exactly. I know the Bardock Special is particularly popular, but other than character designs, Toriyama had nothing to do with it like the other Specials and Films. But something that always struck as odd from the special, despite information to the contrary, was that Bardock was supposed to be som...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

It literally says in the trailer that Bardock, Broly, and Goku are born around the same time. 5 year gap is NOT around the same time. I don't exactly remember, is it mentioned on the manga that there's a 5 year gap between Goku and Vegeta? I mean Goku doesn't remember about his saiyan heritage, but...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

Fantastic work--not just the episode but the entire series. I'm not going to go into ass-kiss mode so what I'll say is this--when people discuss what Dragon Ball is "about" they usually focus on the superficial veneer that's been parodied and exaggerated a million times and that perspective has even...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

After watching Kale in DBSuper 100, I'm even more convinced that the Toei writers are getting ideas from DB Multiverse. Right down to the random Broly energy blasts being tossed around the arena at the other competitors. Any similarities seem pretty coincidental, mostly because both are drawing fro...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

Sitcoms are dialogue driven so anything that sufficiently entertains through casual banter is going to seem sitcom-like. I think South Park is a better comparison, though, because, while sitcoms usually have the protagonists driving the plot, South Park tends to drag them along kicking and screaming.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I agree that "He must pay for his crimes" is unusually articulate for Goku. There are a number of lines like that peppered throughout that I wonder if it's a translation quirk. But the overall tenor of Goku's reaction is spot on, I think. It is a bit of a let down to have skipped over the initial em...

I bet he's bluffing. More importantly, he's holding Ginyu in a "safe" position so he can't change with anyone other than Bra. But that reflection in the glass...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I think it's safe to say that Ginyu is going to swap with Vegetto which would explain Bardock's visions. The bigger question is how Bra gets back in her own body. Maybe we'll have a Futurama scenario where everyone gets swapped around. :D

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Eh, that special isn't super explicit about it. And author commentary is dicta at best. It seems like there was a deliberate attempt at rationalizing Cold's power beyond his appearance in DBZ. Otherwise that "Ginyu was an expert fighter" line wouldn't be necessary.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

This is an interesting way to fix the problem with the earlier implication that Cold had a lot more power in reserve during his encounter with Trunks. Turns out that he didn't. Actually, it doesn't fix it because Ginyu taking over Cold only happened in that universe. No, it does. The Cold Trunks fo...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Vegetto is a weak character anyway. He's a plot device. Even in DBM he's a plot device, existing just to get his ass kicked. I do think the insinuation that he's going to turn heel would be terrible if it turns out to be true but I don't necessarily have a beef with him getting annoyed with Bra. It ...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

For what it's worth, adult Bra doesn't seem quite as callously reckless so there's some character development happening here. It actually might be kind of neat to see Bra as a kind of deconstruction of Goku and Vegeta's parenting--what a superhuman child would actually be like with a father who only...
